Making sure to turn about half way through. Mean while heat up grill until very hot. This can be an indoor or outdoor grill. Once your bratwurst are ready, brush both sides with canola oil and oil grill. Place bratwurst on grill and cook 2 minutes. Then rotate 90 degrees for grill marks and cook for another minute.
